Live from New York. The Book, Broadcast, and Journalism Awards ceremony for the 2014 James Beard Awards is going on right this minute at Gotham Hall. Tim Byres (Smoke, Foundry) is backstage with the shiny medal he just received for Best Cookbook: General Cooking.

His excellent book, Smoke: New Firewood Cooking, beat Try This at Home: Recipes from My Head to Your Plate by Richard Blais and David Tanis’ One Good Dish. I’d say let’s give him a rousing round of applause.

    This is awesome news! Byres is a Dallas icon, doing his own thing, and doing it superbly. I never miss a chance to take out of towers to Smoke to treat them to an authentic slice of life in Dallas. Richly deserved!

    Well deserved Tim! You’ve had a huge impact on both the local dining scene and giving Dallas an edginess on the national map. Keep at it man! You make us all proud.
